Montreal-based Manganese X Energy has released an update after announcing the Battery Hill Manganese Project pre-liminary economic assessment (PEA) results.
“In view of the positive PEA … that demonstrated robust economics and a long mine life, the company confirms a number of ongoing dis-cussions with potential strategic partners looking to source high purity manganese products,” the business said in a statement.
As the next step to accelerate the development of the Battery Hill project, Mangenese X Energy has launched the development of the pilot plant program, according to the miner.
“The CEO of Manganese X Energy already made a personal visit with Kemetco in Vancouver to discuss various options to advance the pro-gram,” according to the statement. “The Company intends to engage an engineering firm to design the work for its field pilot plant, which will utilize the company's innovative solution to produce high purity manganese sulphate without the use of selenium.”
